Russia ratified international nuclear anti-terror treaty
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On October 3, 2006, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a bill officially ratifying the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear TerrorismPDF. A Kremlin statement described the convention as "the first universal treaty designed to prevent acts of terrorism with weapons of mass destruction," providing "a mechanism of cooperation between states to prevent acts of nuclear terrorism and also for exchanging information linked to uncovering, preventing and suppressing crimes stipulated in the Convention while ensuring that the confidentiality of such information can be protected." The convention was the product of several years of negotiations between nuclear and non-nuclear nations.
